Six Months in Sudan

I am reading an amazing book by James Maskalyk called Six Months in Sudan: A Young Doctor in a War-torn Village. It highlights his time as a doctor in the border town of Abyei, Sudan with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). The book began as a blog he wrote in his small hut in Sudan and now it is being read throughout the world. You can also visit his website at http://www.sixmonthsinsudan.com/

Part of the Culture?

So many children serve as restaveks in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. And yet so many people think slavery has been abolished. Educate people please!

President Obama in Ghana!

President Obama and his family in Ghana made quite the headline news in my house. Prosper and I watched it quite a bit. And of course, I was in Cape Coast, so this is of great significance to me. Check it out if you didn't see it already.

Remember, you can turn off the music at the bottom of the page in order to view the movies.

Hi Everyone!

To turn off the music for my blog, go down to the bottom of the page.
Check out the movie trailer for the documentary God Grew Tired of Us by John Bul Dau. The book is so empowering and one of my favorites. I ordered the movie and it's on the way. I can't wait to see it!

You can also can also check out the movie trailer for the documentary film War Dance. I had to order this one too!

And Emmanuel Jal's official video War Child is now an album! His book is awesome! If you want to know more about the genocide of Sudan, the life of a former Child Soldier, and the unbreakable spirit of this young man, then read it!

Gosh, I love Africa! Have I mentioned that before??
